I tried it on tap in St Louis and really loved it. In fact, it sort of inspired me to try using the American Farmhouse yeast blend in a few beers. Not saying that's what they used but it seems similar. But, I can't get it here so I can't say if I'm getting anything close to a clone.
Very nice saison-esque beer.
Special corks and corker. You need a champagne corker that compresses the corks before inserting them.
Have you brewed with figs before? If so, how does the fig character present itself after fermentation. I have access to 20lbs of figs right now and would like to brew something with them. I was thinking a Belgian style of moderate gravity with WLP530.
I've mentioned this before....a great way to use figs is to wait til fermentation is done. Then caramelize the fogs in a super red hot wok and deglaze with some of the beer. Put all of that in a secondary fermenter and rack the beer onto it. Let it go a couple weeks.
Go with an English Brown Mild...even though it's brown, it's a very light, refreshing malty beer. Not saying this is a chick beer, but I did make it for an event, and the ladies and bud lite drinkers alike loved it. If your lady likes brown ales with more malt than hops...this would be perfect for you to introduce her to, as it's something a little different than her fave, but still fits her tastes....she'll like it, and you will look like you're brewing up something for her
